How much money will you need this year to enjoy a luxurious holiday atmosphere at the Christmas markets on Old Town Square? We have mapped this year’s price for you! Do you have enough money in your piggybank?
Most of us look forward to mulled wine or punch. You will pay 60 CZK for it on Old Town Square. You can choose from blueberry, sour cherry or apply punch. At some stands, they will ask 80 CZK for punch, and the alcohol-free version, ideal for children, costs 50 CZK. Tea and coffee also cost 60 CZK, but if you visit the stand near the lookout bridge, it is half the price! Don’t forget to try luxurious honey wine, which will warm you up for 49 CZK (0.08 l) or 89 CZK (1.15 l).
Are you hungry? You will certainly choose something here, on the most famous Czech square! For instance, the Grill near St. Nicholas church offers sausages in a baguette (80 CZK), chicken skewers in a baguette (120 CZK), corn on the cob (60 CZK), hot dogs (45 CZK) or goulash soup (60 CZK). Soups are also available at another “specialised” stand, with garlic, pea or goulash soup at 89 CZK. There is also Hungarian fried bread, potato pancakes and potato spirals, all for 60 CZK. You can indulge in a classic sausage for 70 or 80 CZK.
You can also have Slovakian gnocchi (100 g for 49 CZK) or traditional Prague ham (100 g for 99 CZK). Truly “luxurious” prices, wouldn’t you say? You can have a beer at the same stand for 60 CZK or a Coca-Cola or water in a small PET bottle for the same price. Not thirsty anymore? You’re not the only ones!
Are you craving something sweet! Time for a crepe! You can have one for 90 or 99 CZK. Donut costs 79 CZK, a funnel cake 60 CZK. Appease the children with various gummies and candies (100 g for 48 CZK). And what kind of market would it be if there were no luxurious roasted chestnuts? You can buy 100 grams for 75 CZK.
